    Yeah I keep sending my credit card info to help this Nigerian prince... I haven't seen a cent of the reward he promised me!
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Well first of all i wouldn't be calling him a motherfucker, even if i have never met him ..

    Right .. Planning time

    I wouldn't tell anyone i had the money .. People change.

    I'd do a massive secret santa and put a smile on people's faces and hopefully ease a few worries over the xmas period especially in the area where i live
    I'd help my clients financially and pay for them to have some additional training
    I'd get the hell out of this country ASAP
    I'd get my youngest child into private school where he can focus on his music (and studies)
    I'd pay for my eldest child to go to veterinarian school
    I'd pay off the mortgages of family members
    I would set up a charity to help those less fortunate
    then after all that i'd buy those £42 knee high boots i've been wanting to buy for a while now.

    I would launch The Magic Christian. I liked the book, enjoyed the movie, and would enjoy turning variations of the fiction into reality.

    Hmm...I don't have too many material wants. The usual buy a house, buy some things for family and friends.

    One thing I really would want to do is open up a foundation for kids to the proper type of tutoring for dyslexia and/or central auditory processing disorder. A really good reading tutor that can work with dyslexic kids is super expensive ($60+/hour) and out of reach for so many. The tutoring is also a slow process, too, and can take years to catch these kids up.

    It can also take years of red-tape, bureaucratic maneuvering, and a lot of unnecessary nonsense to finally get a child some inadequate help through public school channels. It shouldn't be like this.

    I'd also get me some genuine Belgian chocolate. I understand it's really good...I'm in a slump now and could use something like that to suck on.

    Buy a villa on the French Riviera and maybe something in Sausalito, set up a massive trust fund, arrange a trip around the world, take on a new job of figuring out how to put the money to good use. Really, you don't need to work but you're in a good positon to figure out how you can give back.

    I'd put enough in the bank to live off the interest indefinitely - perhaps 50K of interest a year, so not all of it. I would build a little adobe house with a observational astronomy lab on top. I would pay the debts of myself and family members. I would develop a business model in which artists and musicians could earn a stable living and provide jobs for my friends and peers. Some money would go into medical research, and quite a bit into the environment. I would also try to open more avenues for free speech with well-researched information and giving a voice to people not often heard. I would try to find ways of investing the money in those areas in ways that would permit some or all of it to come back, so that the benefit could be perpetuated.

    I suppose the first step would be hiring some experienced advisers to help make certain I could pull the above off.

    At first I assumed Queen Kat was getting those tell me your name, address and credit card details because you won billions and millions from a random unknown.

    Then I clicked the thread and it would be enough to fund my international intuition and emotion education development centers and my international holistic health, alternative research and development center and other stuff.
